We have had drinks and dinner here 3 times in 8 days. Good Irish Pub food. We were serviced quickly and the food was great. I had the Irish Stew, and the Meat pie. And they have good whiskey too.

Called in Sheehans for a quick drink as we were not ready to eat yet. The pub was busy and had a lovely atmosphere. The food smelt delicious and we were sorry to leave. After another 2 hours walking around Temple Bar we were ready to eat, looked around and decided to get a taxi back to Sheehans. We ate... More

I love this joint! We stumbled upon this place on our way to Temple Bar and I'm so glad we did! Our server was a great guy that made the best recommendation for their Guinness beef pie. It has to be one of the best things I've ever had! Thanks for rocking my face off lol

Lovely atmosphere. Great Guinness, spotless Toilets and affordable tasty food. Upstairs is less crowded. Chicken and Chips are lovely but would prefer being served on a proper plate as opposed to a wooden platter. But that is just a personal preferance. If I asked I. Probably woul have got a plate The Staff are lovely

Returned here for lunch a year later; loved it once more. This is an amazing spot for lunch off Grafton St.; simple, delicious menu, and rivers of beer upon request. You are doing an amazing job in the heart of Dublin!
